BIRT 2.6 Data Analysis and Reporting helps Java developers create structured reports as well as add visual report elements. They can deploy BIRT reports with the BIRT Viewer and Report Engine API. Additionally users can also learn to update screenshots and scripting debuggers and work with data from JDBC, XML, flat files, and web services. This book not only helps in learning to script in BIRT in order to add business logic, but also helps manipulate report elements and handle events.
This book begins by introducing the concepts of business intelligence, open source software, and different installation methods that can be used to design BIRT reports such as the Palette and Grid components. Towards the end of the book, readers will be able to enhance the presentation of their report using Charts, Hyperlinks, and Drill Through. The book includes a case study at the end along with a real-world example that runs throughout the book.
